I should probably write some new jokes, since I'm hosting a comedy open mic on the 15th and then apparently the entertainment for a Halloween party later in the month. My problem is that the jokes I find funniest tend to be funny only to me, and occasionally Debbie. Example: On our road trips, every time we entered Hadley, I said in my best Harvey Korman impression, "It's Hadley." As this is not funny to anyone who isn't a Blazing Saddles fan, and doesn't really translate to print, I couldn't put it in my column. But it made us laugh. And much as I enjoy performing comedy for a room full of people, sometimes the most rewarding thing is to make one person you love laugh a lot.
I don't mean to post so much about being happy and in love; I could also mention my back has hurt somewhat of late and my lack of income remains a looming issue.
